What’s the problem?
September 27, 2010 – The nationwide Similac baby formula recall currently underway affects milk- and soy-based formulas distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and some Caribbean nations. At least 12 of the recalled products were provided to families through the federal government’s Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) health and nutrition program.
The products in question are being recalled due to the possibility of the presence of a small common beetle in the product, which can cause gastrointestinal discomfort and refusal to eat as a result of small insect parts irritating the GI tract.
The recall of these powder infant formulas includes certain Similac powder product lines offered in plastic containers, and certain Similac powder product lines offered in sizes such as 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce cans.
